Just a few short months before his passing in 1791, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart began composing a musical setting of the funeral mass. When he died, the piece was left incomplete, but the beauty and uniqueness of this composition was undeniable. The work was completed in secret by a former student of Mozart’s named Franz Xaver Süssmayr, but the mystery of this work of genius would fascinate scholars and musicians for centuries to come. Today, it is among the most famous compositions in the history of western music; its structure is intriguing, its harmonies are startling, its melodies are affecting, and its message is timeless.
The Chancel Choir of Christ Church United Methodist is excited to share this masterpiece with its community this Holy Week. Whether you know this piece well or are engaging with it for the first time, this music will stir your soul and bring you closer in connection with your Creator. Come and experience Holy Week through the lens of this powerful marriage of music and liturgy, and be ready for the Lord to speak to you through the collective talents of our Chancel Choir and orchestra.
